Summary: Good little usb stick with nice size capacity. I like how compact it is without being one of those super compact thumb drives that you have to use your fingernails to remove. I will say it's not as sturdy inside of the usb port due to the design and will wiggle a bit. This doesn't affect any usability but just something you might want to know.
Summary: It does write a little slow but not a terribly big deal, I just transfer the file (usually movies) walk away for two minutes and come back. I have it attached to my key chain which has many keys on it and I am never gentle with it and it still is fine. The one complaint I do have is that the key chain hole interferes with the opening and closing of the drive so that when I put it in my pocket in opens the memory card and I fear that I may damage the copper readers or...
Summary: Due to the price i bought this drive. Being who I am, after opening it i immediately bench marked it. It scored around 28 mB/s read, which is twice what my normal cruzer 16g scored. Note i don't trust these results and I think that they are really about the same speed (due to the fact that the 16 is full so it's slower). So I went for a more real world approach. I copied Halo 1 game files (1.4 Gigs) to it and back.
Summary: I needed a USB flash for casual data transfer and the law price of this product caught my eye (got it on another site for about the same price, before reading the reviews here). Pros: Good price Hi capacity Retraceable design, no cover to loose, well protected Aesthetic (IMO). Very light Cons: Feels cheap (made of thin plastic, though seems to be very strong) No activity LED I do not measure transfer speed and did not use any on the software the came with it.
Summary: SanDisk Cruzer Edge 16GB USB Flash Drive SDCZ51-016G-B35 ,Black Sandisk flash drives are value for money. I guess i paid around $15 for this and am still using it without any problems. I had other flash drives as well, it's just that I really liked the shape of it so ordered it. Will recommend it to others as well.
